Kendall Jenner's career has been going a mile a minute and it seems her connection to the Kardashians may not be so useful anymore. The 18-year-old model is now working to find a new house, away from the Kardashian house and 'momager' Kris. With Bruce Jenner no longer living in the family home, the divide between Jenners and Kardashians appears to be widening. With the obvious competition between her and Kim - who we all know has been desperate to break into the fashion world - this desire to move away from the Kardashians seems to prove just how much she wants to go her own way.

Scientists have been on a never ending quest to make sausages healthier, and they have finally cracked it by adding baby poo. The bacteria found in human faeces can help transform usually bad-for-you sausages into a health food similar to probiotic yogurt. Foods that contain live probiotic bacteria have been found to have many health benefits including burning off belly fat, treating depression and could even prevent urinary-tract infections. We hear you, probiotic yogurt already exists - why do we need probiotic poo sausages, just eat the yogurts already and stop with this madness. More »Would you eat baby poo sausages to lose weight?
